This is one of the biggest coolers on the market. To give you an idea how big it is we put a Socket775 CPU on top of it.
The cooler's base plate is protected by a transparent blue plastic foil which is easily removed. This ensures that you receive an absolutely perfect shiny contact surface.
You can see that Scythe is paying a lot of attention to the contact area. It is very flat and perfectly smooth.
Five copper heatpipes are used to transport heat away from the CPU to the heatsink fins.
